    1. Bok had just picked-up the scent of a Pheasant, which he then chased into the air.

    3. Oh hope He enjoys , the weather seems better since yesterday, we had heavy rain for 2 weeks,which spoiled a bit the autumn colours. It's a song from the 16th century and my little son learnt it in the kindergarden.

    1. Those of us who live here would know at once that the photo was taken nearby. It's a very typical scene.

  4. The French oak always amazes me - red leaves in autumn - and red acorns too!

    1. There's a small plantation of those Oaks just beyond where I took the photo. They are amazing colours, but as they are planted in lines; not very photogenic.

    1. I have followed your advice (of which I approve), but I don't want it to sound too 'precious'. I'm more from the McGonagall school of poetry than Wordsworth.

    1. Tears of joy, I hope? Autumn's going quite well so far; plenty of sunshine and not too cold.

    1. Very colourful everywhere here, but I expect it is in Spain too.

    2. Alas, not really. We're a little bit too far south, and not high enough in the hills to enjoy the real autumn colours. The leaves just turn a sort of dead browny gold and then drop off the trees. However we can crunch through them, before they are swept away by the wind. We also have pines which stay the same colour whatever the weather. The rest of our plants in the garden are still flowering, but not so profusely now. It's been down to 11º C so far this month, with a high of 25º on a sunny day.
      I really miss the autumn colours - it's such a beautiful time of year, so thank you for posting the photo.

  13. This made me smile. Three times. Once for Bok, once for the beautiful autumnal scene and once for your masterpiece. Is there no end to your talents?

  14. "Brownly, bronze." I like it.

  15. Simple is often the most expressive. This fits the bill.
